hello darshankheri
IgG test for tb is a very non specific test. it signifies infection with tb bacilli but doesnot denote disease. since the pus culture showed staph, it implies that it is a bacterial pyogenic infection. it will respond well to prescribed antibitoic. a little bit of limping will go with complete resolution of pus as the child limps because of the pain associated with pus movement in the abscess.
continue the treatment and try to get pus sensitivity for the prescribed drugs.
any further query is welcome. thank you for choosing our forum.
